Joaquin Mayoral, Ph.D.
A product development professional with proven success in higher education, medical technology and I.T. I have worked extensively with Abbott Laboratories, Rush Presbyterian St Luke’s, and DeVry University. My skills and experience range from the factory floor to the laboratory ( animal, biochemistry, fluid flow and mechanical ) and includes managing national education programs. As a result I have proven innovative skills in multiple areas creating courses and leading programs in bio-medical technology, creating engineering models that guide design, co-inventor of 9 medical device patents, developer of forms based productivity tools, co-editor to two books in process and an Internet marketing approach. I have a knack for making innovative change happen wherever I work. In particular I am specifically oriented towards process improvement and development including software with programming experience and testing experience in Unix Scripting, C++ and Visual Basic.
I have created this website to help improve the education process currently in place for biomedical engineering students by increasing their insight into what they need to know to get a position in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Students should use the information at this website to compare how their programs are preparing them for a career. I have over 20 years of experience in research and development and I intend to give you the best information I can gather about career preparation for this field. Industry representatives interested in having an impact on biomedical engineering curricula are invited to use this forum to give feedback about their industry segment needs and expectations for entry level engineers to the students and the academic community. Your participation will provide the information that will give the students, parents and faculty a clearer picture of the skills and knowledge needed to be a professional engineer in your industry segment. Most importantly it will be available to anyone who is interested on a 24×7 basis.
